Pillar of Salt: A lively breakfast addition to Richmond

A sharp lively new (5 months new) breakfast addition to the Richmond scene, Pillar of Salt serves great breakfasts, perhaps not as original in its menu offerings as the Pearl Cafe a few blocks away on Church Street. You would need to get there early if you don’t want to queue for a table. We had to wait 10 mins for the communal table but it was worth the wait – the small cafe had a steady flow of the  Richmond chattering set. A dozen or so breakfast options on the menu in addition to croissants, baguettes, muffins and cake slices at the counter.

They know their coffees – they serve house coffee but give you the option of single origin coffee. The Indonesian Ice Coffee was a first for me and was great and the breakfasts were substantial and very tasty. But at $15-16 per plate, not by any means a ‘cheapie’, but I would certainly go back again.
